Jan-25-12  Badmojo: 25. Rec8??? That's C level stuff. Maybe even D. That was a shocking blunder for a 2500+ GM. It doesn't take much to see the coming moves played by White.

It should have been obvious Rc7 was the only move, maintaining equality.

lucky tournament for hari.

earlier timman blundered away the game against hari and now vocaturo

Jan-26-12  Whitehat1963: Tuesday/Wednesday puzzle after 25...Rec8.
Jan-26-12  Kazzak: Thing is, for certain Vocaturo didn't notice until Pentala's Q took the Rook.
